Property code: MAEWY

One of three beautifully furnished properties in the Wye Valley, holding a perfect position to enjoy stunning scenery.

These former stone barns that date back to the 1800’s, have been transformed to provide lovely accommodation within a 4 acre setting. A perfect position for enjoying the stunning scenery the area has to offer with the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons being a short drive away.

The area is particularly famed for its relaxed pace of life and wonderful walks in virtually every direction which culminates with the Crickhowell Walking Festival in March. Immerse yourselves in Welsh cultural history with a visit to one of many historic houses, gardens and castles, the nearest being Tretower Court and Castle which is a classic moat and bailey castle nearly 1000 years old. There are a wealth of attractions including the National Park Visitor Centre, Craig-y-Nos Country Park, Dan-yr-Ogof and The National Showcaves of Wales, The Brecon Mountain Railway, Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, South Wales Borderers Museum and Abergavenny Castle and Museum to name a few within reach. Other events well worth noting are The Hay Festival of Literature and The Brecon Jazz Festival.

This charming reverse level property boasts wonderful country views and provides spacious rooms for you to enjoy and relax. As you enter the property you will find yourself in the spacious hallway with doors leading off to the two ground floor bedrooms one of which is a twin bedroom and the other a double, along with these two bedrooms you will find the ground floor shower room and WC, which completes the ground floor. As you head upstairs to the first floor, this is home to the further two double bedrooms and family bathroom with shower over bath and WC along with the wonderful kitchen/lounge/diner boasting wonderful views and added wood burner. This is the perfect social space to enjoy an evening meal, talking about the days events and listening to some classic tunes on the record player which has been provided for your musical entertainment.

Heading outside you can explore the communal grounds and seating areas along with enjoying a game of table tennis in the shared communal courtyard.

The cottage was beautiful and very well equipped. The bedrooms were all spacious and the open plan living/dining room was lovely for the while family to catch up in! My nephew and dog loved the grounds too. We were able to play football, frisby and have a bbq. It was big enough that we gelt like the only people there even though the other cottages Read morewere full too. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. I would definitely stay there again!!! Hide

The accommodation was very comfortable with some additional touches (fresh flowers, bread, milk, Welsh cakes, etc) which were most welcome. Nick and Julia were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return and would also recommend to friends.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
